With Android thoroughly dominating the mobile industry, picking the best Android smartphones is almost synonymous with choosing the best smartphones, period. But while Android phones have few real opponents on other platforms, internal competition is incredibly fierce.

google pixel and pixel xl

From sleek devices that impress with premium design, to powerhouses brimming with features, to all-around great devices, and affordable phones that punch above their weight, the Android ecosystem is populated by a staggering variety of attractive phones.

We just can’t have enough of Google’s upcoming duo, can we? Earlier ,Google officially confirmed that the pixel phones would be unveiled on October 4,2016 named as Pixel and the Pixel XL!

Phones seem to be made out of aluminum primarily, but as we’ve seen in previous renders, the top part of the devices will have an accent with a different material: presumably glass. The fingerprint scanner will be positioned within that part, and we must say, these phones look very nice indeed.

The only difference between the Pixel and the Pixel XL seems to be the size. They are rumored to feature a 5.2-inch display and a 5.5-inch display, respectively. One thing is for sure, however: the Pixel phones are positively HTC. They look very similar to the HTC A9, and by association, Google’s upcoming phones look very similar to the iPhone. For better or worse.

We see that the XL has a standard Nougat lock screen and the regular Pixel shows off the new boot animation. This seems to be the same animation that we see in Google’s recently released teaser

To refresh your memory, the regular Pixel phone will likely come with a 5.2-inch Full HD display, powered by Snapdragon 820. The Pixel XL will probably sport a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, and it is said to be coming with either a revised version of the Snapdragon 820 chipset or Snapdragon 821. Both devices should feature an identical 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel selfie-shooter.
